Community Service Program
The Community Service Program administers community work service for probationers who are on community control. They are placed with non-profit and governmental agencies and assist these agencies in a variety of projects.
Probationers are referred to the Community Service Program by the Wayne County Court of Common Pleas, as a condition of community control or as an additional sanction for violation behavior.
The probationer is then scheduled to be interviewed by the Community Service Coordinator. The Coordinator will evaluate each probationer’s work, school, and family schedules, as well as his or her access to transportation. Every effort is made to match the probationer’s skill set with the community service agency’s needs. Work activities range from litter collection, landscaping, and maintenance, to clerical and professional tasks.
The Community Service Program demonstrates that community service benefits both the Court and the community. The experience allows probationers the opportunity to model, or at times learn, new work behaviors, as well as develop skills to assist in living more responsibly.
